As Charlie's father, and as a TCA parent for 12 years, I am well aware of the dress code. If you read the article, it says that the senior contract, which Principal Shields agreed to, allowed an exception to the dress code. Charlie has been "abiding by their terms". The issue is that their terms changed, and not only did the terms change, they did a very poor job communicating that fact.
The TCA School Board decided last week that they would not hear our appeal. We had agreed to comply with the board's decision, so Charlie got his hair cut. We thought it was important that we keep our word, even if the administration and the board place a higher priority on short hair than keeping your word.
